“I realized 5 years ago to be able to release it in 2021! I am a fucking visionary. I will connect when I feel like it, like everything I do in life. It comes …”, wrote the 34-year-old himself, who was one of the luxury commentators of Ibai in the final of the Copa América that he broadcast on his channel for Spain.

PIQUÉ’S DECISION TO OPEN HIS TWITCH ACCOUNT
Everything happened after the debate was generated by the presence of Llanos in the presentation of Lionel Messi at Paris Saint-Germain, something that was criticized by a sector of journalism, including Juanma Castaño. In the last hours, Ibai had a talk on Twitch with him and with Siro López, his colleague, where they talked about the roles of streamers and journalists in communication.
Immediately afterwards, Piqué said that he had made the decision to activate his account on the streaming platform. “After watching the Ibai vs Juanma with Siro as judge, I have decided that I am going to create a Twitch account. All in”said the Barsa defender on his Twitter account. And unsurprisingly, he had a lot of interactions from his fans.
